Rays Spring Training

Charlotte Sports Park

Recipient of the USA Today 2014 Readers' Choice Award for Best Spring Training Facility, Charlotte Sports Park is a state-of-the-art facility with a baseball boardwalk ringing the outfield, family-friendly kids play area, upgraded concession stands and a top-notch team store. The Rays Inaugural Spring Training Season in Charlotte County in 2009 featured record-breaking crowds, as the Rays set a franchise record for single-season home attendance. During the 2018 Spring season, the attendance record was broken for the largest single-game crowd at Charlotte Sports Park.
